More on NASA Archiving Its Social Media Content

Last week we mentioned that NASA was beginning to archive their social media. Today, a few more details.

+ Archiving will be done by a fee-based service that's part of the Internet Archive, Archive-It. They currently archive web content for nearly 1000 organizations. Each archive is keyword searchable. Here's a list (with links) of nearly 1000 collections.

+ The Internet Archive and NASA have been working together for some time to centralize access to NASA media (images, film, audio) at NASA Images.

From a NASA Images Blog Post:

We have started by archiving 54 of NASA’s Twitter streams. These 54 streams will be updated once a month, archiving every tweet from every stream. The next step is to archive nasa.gov, including all subdomains, and all of NASA’s social networking activity (YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, Ustream, MySpace).
